8 Send a patch through the bore once in a while to help clean out the crud that the brush is getting loose. You can use the same technique as described above to save time. Just replace the bore brush with the rod tip (patch holder) and a wet patch. Drop it through. You won't need to attach the handler to pull only a patch through. If you leave the rods loose again, the patch will "track' in the rifling as before. But remember, always have the bore wet with cleaner before trying to pull a brush through.
